This sparkling rosé wine is the result of the valuable selection
carried out at the beginning of the 20th century by professor
Luigi Manzoni, principal of the Oenological School in
Conegliano. Several hybridization tests led to the creation of
several crossings, among which Incrocio Manzoni 13.0.25.
This code refers to a specific system used by the professor in
his registers. Incrocio Manzoni is a crossing between Raboso
Piave and Muscat of Hamburg.

> After the harvest, the bunches are gently pressed removing stems
and the must is left in contact with the skins for 12-16 hours at 5 °C.
Cold maceration allows for the extraction of:
> Primary aroma of the grapes, located in the inner part of the skin
> Mannoproteins and other polysaccharides.
This procedure creates a pinkish must, richer in varietal aromas
and more structured.
> Thanks to the low temperature, the fermentation is stopped and less
tannins and polyphenols are extracted, as they would lead to bitter
and astringent features.
> The must is then softly pressed to separate it from the skins.
> Fermentation occurs with the addition of selected yeasts,
in accordance to the Martinotti method, in cuve close at a controlled
temperature of 14-15 °C.
> The wine is then cold stabilized, filtered and bottled.
